This Week's Pick: 17 & Gone by Nova Ren Suma
Publisher: Dutton Juvenile
Release Date: March 21st, 2013
Seventeen-year-old Lauren is having visions of girls who have gone missing. And all these girls have just one thing in common—they are 17 and gone without a trace. As Lauren struggles to shake these waking nightmares, impossible questions demand urgent answers: Why are the girls speaking to Lauren? How can she help them? And… is she next? As Lauren searches for clues, everything begins to unravel, and when a brush with death lands her in the hospital, a shocking truth emerges, changing everything.
With complexity and richness, Nova Ren Suma serves up a beautiful, visual, fresh interpretation of what it means to be lost.
Well, why not have a creepy novel as my Halloween Waiting On Wednesday pick! Ever since I heard of 17 & Gone I have been desperate to read it. It sounds captivating and disturbing and everything I love in a novel. I read the prologue (which was part of a sampler pack) and I was bowled over. Nova Ren Suma is a brilliant writer. My jaw dropped when I read the prologue because it was so beautifully written and so fascinating. If I had that reaction just from the prologue, I can't imagine what I'm going to do when I read the book! Counting down the days until I get to find out!
Also, isn't the cover just fantastic? It fits the atmosphere perfectly and looks stunningly gorgeous! I'm sure it's going to look even better in person.
